Framemaker Seg faults on FC5


I have a hacked version of FM 5.5.6 Beta that has run on various redhat distributions since RH6.0

Two weeks ago I upgraded from Fedora Core 4 to Fedora Core 5, and FM now seg faults while setting up memory areas. I will append the last bunch of lines from running struss.

My suspicion is that this is either a change in the way the kernel handles memory mapping or that a library has changed.

1. Anyone know of a change in FC that could cause this.

2. Ideas about how to fix this. This is sufficiently critical, that I will reinstall another distribution if necessary.


open("/usr/lib/libXdmcp.so.6", O_RDONLY) = 3
read(3, "\177ELF\1\1\1\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\3\0\3\0\1\0\0\0\220\177"..., 512) = 512

Problem solved. Upgraded machine to Fedora Core 6, and FM starts up just fine.
